My husband and I stayed at the Briar Patch to celebrate our 20th anniversary, using a Living Social Coupon. The staff was excellent right from our first phone call, working with us for several days to find a date and room combination that suited us despite the fact that we had let our coupon go til close to its expiration! Henriette, the on-site manager, greeted us warmly on arrival and made us feel quite at home, and was informative and open to all of our questions during our stay.

We stayed on a Sunday and Monday in January, and had the house almost to ourselves. We loved the Rose/Sunflower suite on the 2nd floor, with a hall door that closed us off from the rest of house when we wished. Our rooms, including the bath, were spotless and made up each day. The beds were very comfortable with plenty of pillows. Our only complaint was that is was too hot in our rooms, and we had to open windows to sleep comfortably. The hot tub was a luxurious treat one night, though it took a long time to heat up.

The website states that a continental breakfast is served on weekdays, but we had delicious hot choices each morning: quiche, pancakes, scrambled eggs, nut bread and other baked yummies accompanied by fresh fruit salad and a variety of beverages. Everything was freshly prepared and delicious. When we had to leave very early on our last monring, the staff prepared things for us to heat up the next morning so we wouldn't miss out.

There are little things that would have earned Briar Patch 5 stars from me -- larger, more luxurient bath towels, for instance, or more comfortable lounge chairs in each room -- but we plan to return and would recommend this B&B to any of our friends. Great location, great service, good food, lovely rooms... who could ask for more?!

Room Tip: The Rose and Sunflower rooms share a bath, but make a very private suite if rented together. Ditto for the the Hyacinth and Violet rooms, which are larger and offer a king sized bed.

We experienced a wonderful getaway couples overnight. The staff was wonderful and the inn was very clean. The location is nice. It's away from town, so it tends to be quiet. However, you are just a couple miles from Middleburg. It is also very close to a number of vineyards/wineries. After spending time doing a couple of wine tastings, we were able to spend a relaxing afternoon at the inn. It was quiet and a great time to read and enjoy a beverage. Being so close to Middleburg, you can enjoy a great dinner at a number of restaurants. There are almost too many restaurants to choose from in Middleburg.

The breakfast was nice, and the company of the other guests was very nice. My wife enjoyed a nice morning spa with a cup of coffee.

OK so we are not experienced B&B people - our first time actually. I have read the more negative reviews and would like to say that we had NONE of the problems reported by them. Being that we are first timers maybe our expectations were a bit less expectant....but I feel extremely happy with the accomodations, service, and atmosphere. We were greeted very warmly and the staff was always helpful, There was access to all the things we needed at all times, and the Cottage which holds a huge amount of charm and whimsy was PERFECT for us! I can not speak to the hot tub or pool as we were there in December, and did not utilize them. Pet friendly really was one of the things that sold me on this destination - though we did not bring our dog I was happy to see a place that was welcoming of the idea of animals. I would like to say that I found the cats to be a welcome and fitting addition to the property. They were friendly and added a homey feel to our stay. I am confused by those persons that might be offended by them when seeking to stay in a rustic, beautiful country setting....If you are not into nature and the things found there, maybe you should stay at the Hilton. LOVE LOVE LOVED our time at the Briar Patch and hope to spend future anniversaries there.

Room Tip: Loved the Cottage - Charming, whimsical, and quiet. LOVE the tub!

We spent two nights at the Briar Patch to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.
The Inn is quaint and historic. You can read into that whatever you like, but it is an old house, so don't expect the Marriott. We stayed in the Daisy Room, which was small, but more than adequate for us. We thought the breakfast was great, even though buffet style, and compared to our usual time for breakfast, a bit late...but, it was all good. Charlotte couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. We spent our days exploring Middleburg and visiting several wineries.

This place was great for our weekend getaway. We booked last minute, so they gave us 20% off which was great. it was a cooking class weekend so we had to participate and that was pretty pricey, not worth it so we wouldn't recommend it.

We were able to bring our 9 month old puppy and she had a great time. There are horses on the property and a bunch of cats. Good field areas to play fetch, but no fenced in areas. The rooms are really cute, they are clean and have a great historic feel. the minute we checked in we were told to make ourselves at home and we did. Dan is really kind and we had a very good experience with service. Breakfast was good as well, it's not a five star restaurant so don't expect fancy food. there was spinach artichoke quiche which was delicious! French toast, fresh fruit, and some chocolate chip bread dish.

We stayed in the Hyacinth room which is said to have a ghost. Our neighbor said she would hear knocking in the middle of the night, but it was probably just the old house making it's squeaky sounds. We will most likely be back and stay in the Rose room. I peeked inside and it was a bit bigger than what we had. The town of Middleburg is quaint and we'd like to explore it some more.
